EB Video Premiere: LA Vampires with Maria Minerva – End of the World
We always have time for two of our favorite weirdo outsider darlings: 100% Silk honcho Amanda Brown (here in her LA Vampires guise) and avant-pop starlet Maria Minerva. This video, composed of footage shot by Benjamin Shearn on the 100% Silk live tour and shot through with neon light, is a triumph of basement DIY aesthetics gone HD-slick. The clip partners the rough textured and incantational “End of the World” single taken from their collaborative album The Integration LP and reaffirms what we always suspected: that 100% Silk and Not Not Fun rarely put a foot wrong these days. We’re already looking forward which releases and tunes will come to light next year. Until then, enjoy their latest chapter right here on Electronic Beats.
